I don't know if this has been done before but it is an idea that has been circulating in my mind for a while now. I would like to present this opening part of the story and see what the general reaction is to it before I proceed. Please note that my references to the Jews in accordance with the writing of the times refers to the Jewish leaders and is not meant to be anti-Semitic in any way shape or form. The Conversion and Life of Saint Gaius also called Caligula By GeonWhen Caligula fell ill in Rome there was great fear throughout the city. It was whispered that the young emperor had been poisoned by those who were jealous of his ascension to power. All of Rome was saddened and fearful that their “little boots”, as he was so often nicknamed would die. In the temples many offered sacrifices and prayers to the gods on behalf of the emperor. And in the palace servants quietly aided the physicians as they attempted to save the young man’s life. Now it happed that one of those servants was a follower of the Way. He went to one of the Roman centurions who guarded the Emperor and said, “There is one who may be able to heal the Emperor. In the city there is a man named Clement, who is a follower of Jesus of Nazareth. He is a godly man, full of the Holy Spirit. Send for him.For all the physicians seem unable to do anything to help the emperor. The Roman centurion was astonished at the boldness of the servant and decided to do as he suggested. He sent a Roman guard to find Clement and ask him to come to the palace. Clement agreed, even though many in the church were fearful that this was some sort of deception to arrest him, for the Jews had been making terrible accusations about the Christians in Rome of late before the magistrates. Nevertheless, Clement said he would come with the guards and returned to the palace with them. When Clement was brought into the inner rooms of the palace he saw Caligula lying upon his couch in great distress, and there was hardly any breath left in him. Clement came up to the couch and laid his hands on Caligula and said, “Little boots,” the Lord Jesus Christ bids you get up. Immediately the illness left Caligula and he rose from his couch and looked around in wonder. Caligula then asked what had happened and Clement said, “You have been ill most excellent Caligula, but Jesus Christ has healed you of your illness. Now if you will hear your servant please eat something that you may regain your strength.” Caligula immediately ordered food not only for himself but for Clement, and the servants brought bread, fruit, cheese, and wine. And when they had brought the food Caligula asked Clement to dine with him. Caligula then asked, “Who is this Jesus you speak of, for I know very little of him?” Immediately, Clement began to speak to Caligula of the faith. For several hours Clement spoke with Caligula and it was clear Caligula was very moved by what he heard. When Clement told Caligula how Jesus had been falsely accused by the Jewish leaders before Pontius Pilate he ordered that a transcript of the trial be found and brought to him. He further asked that Clement would return to speak with him further on the faith. Clement agreed and the Roman guard saw him safely to his home.
